Community Equity: Food Entrepreneurs and Investors Joining in New Funding Models
For the Community, By the Community: With new funding models, local investors can foster inclusive entrepreneurship and social justice in local food systems. Let's take the destiny of our local economy and food system into our own hands! Community members care more about social justice in the food system than banks or Wall Street. The new crowdfunding models just became a more serious funding source. All of us can get invested in businesses we care about. Monday, August 29, 2016, 6pm-8pm, Red Bay Coffee Warehouse, 3098 E. 10th Street, Oakland, CA 94601. Join entrepreneurs and investors for a conversation about how they raise funds for enterprises with a mission - and get real and healthy food along the way. We’ll take a look at community funding options and learn from investment stories in Northern California.
